Here is a question I have asked in the past Access to Course through Catalog Dashboard.
Our students register through Catalog. The course may not start for another two weeks. We want the students to have access to the course prior to the start.
Catalog does NOT recognize "Restrict students from viewing course before start date" check box in Canvas. Therefore, if students logged into Canvas, they can see the course. This would be fine however....
The email from Catalog drives them to the Catalog dashboard. But, when they arrive, the course is locked because it won't start for 2 weeks. -
They can access the course by going to their name and clicking Canvas under there. However, we are finding this is not intuitive to users.
